collecting coconuts in the village
As this little school is so very far away, I dont get to go there as often as I would like. Inbetween visits we collect books and school equipment into boxes which we can then deliver on our next trip. Most of these wonderful boxes are collected by our dear friend Angela Schmidt who lives in Germany but has taken these children into her heart.
This year we handed over the funds to rebuild the school room. The roof was blown away in the cyclone of 2007 and the school was managing with makeshift shelters of poles and banana leaves. I have yet to see the finished building but Lucas, who is managing the project and who ahs two children at the school, assures me that the building is finished and the roof is on. Congratulations everyone and big heartfelt thanks on behalf of the children, parents and teachers at the school.
Hopefully we will go there in the new year and i can report back with words and photos. In the meantime thought i would add a few photos from our last trip.
